A man was arrested after allegedly pointing a gun at a driver on Interstate 95 in Lexington, Massachusetts, Monday, police said.
Javier Lopez, 22, was pulled over on Route 3 in Billerica shortly after the road rage incident was reported at 3 p.m., Massachusetts State Police said Tuesday.
Lopez, who lives in Lowell, was told he'd been stopped because someone reported the driver of a red Ford Focus had pointed a pistol at their vehicle on I-95 going north, police said. The trooper searched the driver's seat and found a loaded .40-caliber pistol.
Lopez doesn't have a firearms license -- or a driver's license -- and was arrested on six charges, including assault with a dangerous weapon and in licensed operation of a vehicle, police said.
